Front Strut Rod Bushings 99-06 Ford E350 Super Duty
The Front Strut Rod Bushings (or Radius Arm Bushings) on the '66-'79 4WD Bronco and many year models of Ford vans and trucks are responsible for maintaining the caster angle of the front wheels. When these bushings wear down the strut is free to pivot and change the position of the wheel during acceleration and braking. These polyurethane front strut rod bushings replace the worn down original rubber bushings to reduce steering wander and wheel hop when accelerating.
Rubber Bushings Wear Down
Your original front strut rod bushings are made of rubber and provide a soft ride by absorbing vibrations from the road, but they do this by flexing. Over time this flexing will change the shape of the bushing and allow gaps to form which limits the ability of the strut to hold the caster of the wheel. This can cause wheel hop in your front wheels when rapidly accelerating and decrease the response of your steering.
If your van is experiencing some of these symptoms while making deliveries around downtown Fort Worth then you want to fix those problems and while you could use rubber replacement bushings what if there was another replacement option that not only lasted longer but also held wheel alignment better?
Durability and Performance
Polyurethane front strut rod bushings from Energy Suspension are much more durable than rubber and hold the caster angle of the front wheels during quick acceleration and braking. You will notice that the ride is a little stiffer, but that is what comes with more responsive steering, braking, and acceleration.
Besides being more resistant to everyday wear, polurethane bushings will stand up to heat, motor chemicals, and road salt which will degrade rubber until it cracks or falls apart completely. These bushings are covered by an exclusive lifetime warranty from Suspension.com and we will handle warranty issues here in house. That's how sure we are that these bushings will last the life of your Ford.

starstarstarstarstar" Very Good "
There was no synthetic grease supplied. No problems with with installation. Editors Note: Because there is not a sleeve that rotates in the bushing like a control arm bushing grease is not needed.verified_user Verified Buyer - ed muth /SCC - . Energy Suspension 4.7107 - 5 out of 5
starstarstarstarstar" Review 2 Years Later "
After 2 years of normal use the suspension is better than the original ride that came with natural rubber. Firm and comfortable with excellent tracking and handling. Energy suspension parts have made a great difference in ride and durability on my 1969 Ford F100. I will definitely use them on my next build project. I highly recommend them.verified_user Verified Buyer - Leonard E Maze - . Energy Suspension 4.7107 - 5 out of 5

starstarstarstarstar" wasnt sure i ordered the correct ones for 77 2wd f100 "
Like my impression i wasnt sure they would work because the originals were a long rubber piece that ran the length of the area they go on the radius arm and another rubber "cap" that slides on that rubber part before bolting the washer on....these were goid though and i just assumed a different (more modern better?) design to match the bushing material and the needed performance of where it goes....so they work, they work good...the fit around the radius arm was tighter than new rubber ones(which i also had purchased) almost by design so theres less play on an area of the radius arms which by now is probably rusted the diameter of the radius arm down 1/32-1/16" on all these by now..so less play on the together vehicle (if thats an issue)\nWorked good, would use againverified_user Verified Buyer - benjamin j rutledge - .
